It is composed of of Isopropyl Alcohol (a propane derivative) and Myristic Acid (a naturally-occurring fatty acid), It is most often used an an additive in aftershaves, shampoos, bath oils, antiperspirants, deodorants, oral hygiene products, and various creams and lotions.

What is its use? I'm looking for something that can help me to provide a good detangle to my hair in my liquid conditioner, could someone please help me? I'm using btms, but it doesn't detangle my hair well nor does it give me softness, thank you very much and sorry for the inconvenience.

Loved this product.

I added this product to my formulation and it was amazing as it took away the greasiness and made it a pleasant product to use.
